Richmond Equitable Development Initiative
The Richmond Equitable Development Initiative (REDI) is a collaborative of advocacy, research and grassroots community based organizations working together in Richmond and throughout the Bay Area on environmental justice and social justice issues. REDI actively supports the need for quality, living-wage jobs and job training programs linked to growth industries and sectors as well as quality, affordable housing options, effective and connected public transportation networks and an overall healthier and cleaner environment. REDI conducts research and policy analysis, organizes community stakeholders and advocates for public policy and development that benefits instead of burdens low-income communities and communities of color. REDI’s aim is to protect neighborhoods and communities against the potential for displacement or gentrification.
Who we are
REDI organizations and its community members represent thousand of Richmond families that are representative of Richmond’s rich diversity in age, culture, and ethnicity. As a coalition, REDI collaborative partners lead campaigns and projects, provide research and technical assistance, and organize community stakeholders around REDI’s key campaigns and projects.
REDI Collaborative Partners are leading REDI campaigns and projects in Richmond that support our vision for Richmond.
